TUESDAY EVENING. )ANURT 25. 1887. AT LAST. We print today a Matement conoenilns the city's movement In tlie direction f a city Iiulliliuc ami a market Iioum. that will be raid with interest by all classes of people. The plans nre on a larp" and am ple scale, ami we are, at la-t, to have pub lic buildings that will be a cnilit to the city. Tlien the proposal of Oliver S. Kelly to build an esplanade In the center of the Market square, at his own expense, is a specimen of individual local public spirit, on so law a .scale as to almost taVe one's breath away '. With this new city hall buililiiiR. the esplanade, a fourth story on 31 r. Kelley's Arcade block, and with such other fine business buildings as are sure to be put up on all the lots fronting the Market space, we shall have a public square that will be a new and distin guishing feature of the city, in which our people will take a very high degree of rride. We may aihU here, that with those improvements mentioned: with, the com mencement of tbe work on the government building which will be made this year: and with other building enterprises already In augurated, the year 1SS7 will lie one of the busiest and most prosperous eier known in the history of Springfield. We are afraid that Hon. John P. St. John, late prohibition candidate for the presidency, is unhappy and ill-natured. At a speech made at Voungstown the ottier night, speaking of 5ss Frank Willard. he said: "The grand woman knocked at the door of the republican convention in Chi cago, and prayed the privilege of pnent ing the cause of the fireside and home. She was granted a hearing; but such a hearing! A beggarly liftTti minutes was allowed her, and she was compelled to speak amid the fumes of tobacco smoke, and surround ed by drunken revelers, who openly jeered her sentiments." The text of this utter ance was wired to Hon. Win. McKinley, juiL, who was a member of the committee on resolutions at the Chicago convention, and he was asked as to the facts in the cas: He replied as follows: Miss Willard was given a most attentive and resjiectful hearing by the committee on resolutions of the republican national con .entioiiof 1SS4. The time she occupied I do not now recall, but remember the ad dress as an able argument which com manded the closest attention of the com mittee, and that it was not made "amid fumes of tobacco smoke and surrounded by drunken revelers who oienly sneered at her sentiments." I certainly heard no Hieers and witnessed no such scenes. My recollection is that more time for discussion was given to the interests she represented than to any other. In this telegram Mr. Phelps, of New Jersey, as a member of the committee, concurs. On February 12th, the birthday of Abraham Lincoln, there will be a remarka ble gathering in the dining hall of Del munico's famous restaurant Xew York. All the republican governors of the United States will be present, (or at least have been invited,) and with them are expected to be James G. Maine; Senators Evarts and Mil ler, of Xew York; Senator-elect Hiscock. of Xew York; General W. T. Sherman and Senator John Sherman; Senator Joseph IL Hawiey, of Connecticut; Hon. llobertT. Lincoln, of Illinois; ex-Governor Long, of Mavsachusetts; ex-Governor Charles Foster, of Ohio; Hon. William Walter Phelps, of New Jersey; Whltelaw Iteld, esq., of the Xew York Trlhunc and Chauncey M. I)e )ew. esq., president of the Xew York Cen tral railway system. Sucli a collection of brainy men is seldom seen in any country and such a buzzing of presidential bees as will be heard on tills occasion will break the record of American or European or chestras. Lord Urassey Is a great person who has a very tine gingerbread house at Hastings, on the English channel, a very beautiful city, where everything is of tiie finest, with a jsjssible exception of the lords. Tills iarticolarly great man has recently been in America, and he contributes "A Flying Visit to the United States," to the yinetteitth Century, a Loudon magazine. In which be sajs that Chicago is situated on the shore of Ijike Huron. "My Lord should tly slower next time. Then he would not make such a terrible break as to take tlie great city of Chicago from the western shore of Lake Michigan and slam it down on the east shore of Lake Huron, clear across the state, near the Canada border. A few freaks of that sort would involve us In difficulty with our mother i-ountry. Hmwv should rub himself up. There is no u.uisci ot war oetwecn the United States and Great Britain. The wheels of the world's civilization would be blocked by any such conflict The matte s at issue will be in some way peaceably set tled. Uncle Sam will not strike his mother t and the venerable old lady will doubtless ! promptly remove all occasion. We shall probably hear some Jingo racket, but that I will be all. The Jingos are noisy people, i l.tit thpv are few iu nunilwr and physically I and mentally feeble. Judge Pike lias decided at Toledo that the local-option clause of the Dow law is unconstitutional. The saloon-keepers of IVatenrllle brought the case and asked for an injunction in their belialf. and it was j granted. The case will be apjiealed and , the decision will, iu all probability, be re-; Yersed. Pike must be a queer fish. Hy the election of Frank Hiscock as Sen ator Xew York will be carried for the re-' publican candidate next year. Xew York republicans are at last united and hanuo-' nious, and will solidly vote for either Shei nian, or Blaine, or Lincoln, or any other good republican. "The great west will fumisit the next president of the United States" shouts the Chicago Inter Ocean. It it is a republican that the great west is to "furnish," we hope Jt will do IU part toward eluding him. J flir.SlC.lL CULTURE IS TI1K l'VIILlf I SCHOOLS. Certain of our public school teachers Colonel White, the superintendent, and i Mr. W. H. Weir, of the High school, and I some others arc beyond criticism in their I muscular projiortinns. They combine, in j their conqiosltioii, brain, heart and muscle, I iu symmetrical development; but there are many teachers and" many pupils who are mere bundles of brain and heart, with very I inadequate supplies of bone and muscle, land very thin blood. The tendency of j their blood is to the head, the mental work of the brain requiring it and coaving it up there, to be disappointed with its thinness and lack of vitalizing qualities. As a re sult of this, headaches abound and cases of illness and general bieaking down of health are not infrequent. The most important work now to lie done in connection with our lo cal educational work, is to make an effort to save the health and Hies of the workers. We have a very' excellent corns of teachers and our school-children are, as a body, in their mental and moral qualities, au element of which we may well be proud. They are making good progress from year to year, in the acquirement of kuowledge and in the building of character two very' important features. Xow what is needed, more than antliing else, is that the physical condition of teach ers and children alike, shall be cared for. This is a matter that aught to be attended to at once. Systematic physical training, in which both the instructois and the in structed, shall participate, should le en tered upon, promptly, and it may be done without expense loss of time.

Indeed, whether these features exist here. now. or not, we do not know, but we do know that if efficient measures were taken, systematically and universally, in our scliools, to put the body iu a condition In which it would he found epial to its part as an element in the edu citing system, we should fiud that the teachers as well as the scholars would en joy a physical power and endurance which will enable them to do their best w irk. There must be an organized, united, in sistent aud energetic effort in this direction. We urge it in the public interest We urge it in behalf of the cause of humanity. It is easier to preserve health and physical vigor than to restore it when it is gone, i.ife may be preserved, but when it has gone, it cannot be restored. There are teachers and scholars in the schools who will break down and probably die if prompt means are not taken to save them which means if comprehensive and ef ficient would be universally helpful: that is to say would be of benefit to all the children. Much has been said" In this direction, in the ItErruLic, during a series of years and e erybody has conceded that was true and forcible: that physical culture ought to be made a prominent feature in" our local educational system. Nothing that the board of education or the instruc tors, could consider, could be equal in im pirUnce to the taking of this matter in hind. It may be that something in this line Is now being done, but we are certain thit not enough of it is beiug done and that it is not being done efficiently and thoroughly. California staple Crop. The great staple product of Californu is wheat, of which alwut 50.000.tnK) bush els, worth more than t J0,IXX,OuO, art raised in a good year, four-fifths of which are exported. Thin wheat is almost wholly raised on large ranches by con tract. The wheat grower is no more i farmer than he is a miner or a miller. He lets out his plowing and seeding by the acre and borrows money from the bank! to pay the bill, giving security on th growing crop. In harvest time a contractor comes or the ground with his harvesters, thresher and separators, an outfit costing as much as fo.OOO. He brings his own crew ol twenty to twenty-five men. who move about from place to place, living like gypsies in the open air. They gather in the broad fields of grain at the rate oi more than 1,000 bushels per day, ane leave the crop neatly piled up in sacks, U wli'oh the rancher has not put his l.i ni frtai first to lat.

"The blizzards out in Dakota are so ter rible," said a man just in from the north, "that the people string clothes lines from their homes to their outhouses in order that they may pass to and fro during the prevalence of one of these storms without running the risk of losing their way in their own yards. One cannot see three feet ahead in a Dakota blizzard, and if he once loses his bearing" he is almost cer tain to drift out upon the prairie and per ish before assistance can reach him.

REASON WHY AMERICAN WOMEN DISLIKE DOMESTIC SERVICE. A SMle "f Humiliation That It Knlirrly UiiiM''isar. for i:rrj Oftlclat Pol llon Tlirrv I all Drill Ul Mannrr. Tlii Two Librarian. i I In the very interesting letter written to J The Xew York Nation there is one reason i Kivcu "why American women do not like domestic service," on which l should like to make a remark. Xo. 7 of the answers to this question, obtained from the niem lers of the Philadelphia Workingwomcn's guild, is as follows: "I know an educntcil woman a lady who tried it as a sort ot up)cr housemaid. The work was easy aud the jiay good, and she never had a harsh word, but they just seemed uncon scious of her existence. She said the gen tlemen of the houe, father and son, would come iu and stand la-foro her to have her take their umbrellas or help theni otT with their coats, sometimes without speaking to her or even looking nt her. There was something so humiliating nlioiit it that she couldn't stand it. but went back to Mop shop sewing." It seems to me that this sense of hu miliation was entirely unnecessary that it came from a misunderstanding of the case; and that this misunderstanding is IH-culiarly frequent in women, and cannot but seriously hamper them in the effort to make, as men do, their own place in the world. It docs not matter how they nro try ins to nmke it whether as shop girls, librarians, domestic servants, doctors or dressmakers; the mistake is equally fatal in ever kind of work, and may lo no ticed just as often iu one n in another. It is simply this- The failure to recognize that for every otlicinl position there is an otlicial manner. That i the very first thing a man learns when be enters on any profession whatsoever; it is that which preserves his dignity and independence, enables him to lx-come proficient in his I business and clears the croiind for that l,r I true friendship ln-tween him and his em class I ployer. w hich is founded on mutual re- I spect and gratitude, lake away this ol i licial manner and vou make life trouble- easily have kept lnitn her seir-respect aim her good pay by making one slight effort of imagination. Iet her picture to her- self her position if the gentlemen of the house undertook to treat her, not as an official, but as one of their lady friends. Would this make it less or more disagree able to help them off with their coats t Would it not seem a lilerty iu them to ask such assistance from her Moreover, how would they have gained the right to treat her as a friend T Is friendship a thing she will sell for "Riod pay ?" These men were stranirers to her, she had made a contract to do for them, iu considera tion of a money equivalent for her trouble, certain things which they disliked, or were, not able to do, for themsehes; their right was her work, just as her right was their money; but neither had a right to the other's friendship, for the simple rea son that friendship besides lieing too sacred, too full of danger us of blessing, to be desirable with persons whose char acter and disposition we have had no chance to learn is one of those things which grow and are not made, aud of which artificial imitations are worse than nothing. The official manner which was expected of her, the apparent ignoring of her presence, the silent acceptance of her services, far from being humiliating, were a proper resi.ct to her, a right protection, and had this been removed, she, I am sure, would quickly have felt and resented her loss. A GREAT CONTRAST. I know two librarians; one the very ideal of an official, chary of speech, digni fied, prompt, active, immovably gracious, distant and obliging, and thereby so im pressive that the whole town, whose ser vant she is, receives Its books from her, asks her for information and pays her its fines with submissive and affectionate gratitude. The other has no official man ner; she is just herself personally; and you, if you ask her for a book, are asking a favor of her. She cannot establish her authority over the patrons of the library, because, lawful as that authority really is, she takes it. by her manner, com pletely off its proper basis, and makes it a mere attempt on the part of one free citizen to command another, which human nature will not stand. Every doctor knows that his profes sional manner is worth half Ids practice to him; not because it gives him an air of being wiser than he really is, but be cause it make for his patients a certain assured ground to go upon; they know what to expect; and without it the an noyances of illness would be very much increased. Equal advantages in the study of medicine, equal talents and power even, will not make women as good doctors as men are if they cannot learn this. I may lie satisfied that a lady is a very .Tenner, aThompson. a Warren, forskill and learn ing, but till I jerccive that she has an immovable prCZessionn manner I shall not ask her professional advice. Nor can I imagine that the practice of that pro fession will be agreeable or elevating to herself. In the same way, for every de partment of life in which human leings are brought into a relation with each other which is not of nature, nor of affection, there must be a conventional form estab lished which shall defend the personality of each. This is the indispensable pre requisite of friendship; it is only things distinctly divided which can be brought into union: there is no unity in an un divided mass. "G. E. M.'" iu Boston Transcript.

Tell me not that there is no carrior where I see the sky full of carrion crows, waiting and Hying and cawing to each other, and circling around some center Though I see nothing I know what is there.

One cannot lear to see God's everlasting laws of equity set at de fiance and no punishment follow Aud when transgressors are picbed off in the presence of the world, and they are shaken and their bones rattle before men, there is a sort of awful pleasure in it Aud yet of all the things that perish on the earth, not tne pensning ot temples, nor the destruc tion of pictures, not the fracture of costly marbles, not the ruiu by earthquakes of cities or of villages, is half so sad and so melancholy as the destruction of the young that are going dowu in our midst from day to day.

"If we had two or three terrific hail- i storms each year," said a man from Wis- j consin, "the English sparrow nuisance would soon be abated. There are fewer sparrows in Wisconsin to-day than at any time within the jiast ten years. This is all due to the fierce hail-storm which swept over the state about five months ago.

Now both stomach and liver are ierformliig their 1 functions. I have many friends in Western j Ohio. N. K. Iowa and S.W. Mo. who would like to know this."
